We carried out a parental engagement survey which closed just before Christmas. We are working through the comments and suggestions that you have told us could improve our centre and we thank you for the positive feedback we also received about what is going well within our centre.
Parents commented that they would like to know more about what their child is learning and how they can support their child at home. We have produced parent information sheets which give an overview of the learning focus in the curriculum areas of literacy, numeracy and health and wellbeing for this term. Please click on the links below to view the information sheets and please let us know what you think about these by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

The children in the toddler room have enjoyed learning about Chinese New Year and Chinese culture. They had sensory fun trying to find number cards hidden in the coloured noodles. The cards had pictures of pigs on them as 2019 is the year of the pig! The children also had sticky fun making their own coloured Chinese dragons. At snack time they sampled some traditional Chinese food and explored this with chopsticks. Everyone joined in and had a taste. The prawn crackers were a definite favourite!! Yummy!!
In the toddler room we have chosen our toothbrushes and we are cleaning our teeth after lunch. We like to do this everyday.
In the Toddler Room last week the children were enjoying the snow. They managed to fill a tray with snow using the gardening tools. After discussing the colour of snow the children experimented with paint creating their own snowman and of course Elsa from Frozen.
